watch me bleed

watch me bleed

why not
break my heart again
just like you do
every time
just like you did
the last time
why not
find the time
the perfect rhyme
and watch me bleed
as each poetic thrust
pierces
a concrete shell
that was made of glass
until I am exposed
for the fake
and the fraud
you always knew I was
why not?

why not
stand before me
bathe me in your luminous beauty
save me from my self imposed prison
my garrison of self loathing
shed your light and cleanse me
heal me with your touch
sedate me with your voice
melodic and seductive
wounded and raw
drown me in you
until every breath
is your name
and every heartbeat
hurts
throbs
breaks
for you
why not?
